What is a VPN

You might have heard the term VPN thrown around online.

 

But what is it, and what does it do?

 

The term VPN stands for Virtual Private Network.

 

As the name suggests, a VPN allows you to create a secure connection to another network over the internet. This is done by connecting to a VPN server.

 

VPNs establish a virtual point-to-point connection between your device and the internet, sending your data through an encrypted tunnel.

 

Because VPNs hide your location and encrypt your internet connection, they’re a safe way of accessing the internet.

 

VPNs turn you anonymous online, keeping you and your data away from prying eyes. And they’re more important than ever for your digital privacy.

 

Your digital anonymity is targeted at every step

 

When you browse the internet, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) gives your devices an IP address.

 

This IP address uniquely identifies your device and allows it to send and receive information. You can think of it as your digital address.

 

But your internet connections are not encrypted. Your ISP, your government, and everyone else snooping knows what you do online.

 

And it doesn’t end here.

Arguing that you don't care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don't care about free speech because you have nothing to say.
